Hello BESTers,

An exciting development out of India!  A small-scale, affordable 
digester has been developed for food waste digestion.  The units 
are currently available for individual households and 
institutions.  India has been  one of the leaders in developing 
small-scale digesters (mainly for animal waste), but are now 
branching into utilizing household food waste.  The great thing 
about these digesters is that they are not only for developing 
countries, but have great potential for developed counties in 
rural, suburban, and urban areas.  Could this be the beginning of 
the off-the-shelf digester technology the world needs?
Have a great weekend,
Ryan
